Honesty (2003) is Wong Jing's romantic comedy starring Cecilia Cheung and Richie Jen. Richie Jen plays a straight-as-an-arrow guy who's girlfriend for the past several years grows tired of his good guy image and sleeps with the pizza delivery guy. Poor Richie loses it and moves into his nephew's flat. While he's there he tries to straighten out his personnel life while helping out the morals of those around him. That's until he meets Di-Di, a former B-Girl/Prostitute who learns about the monetary windfall Richie will come into. She's does her best to make sure she's apart of it! What happens next is pure Wong Jing!
Another romantic farce from Hong Kong's most prolific Director, Writer, Producer, Actor. He's one of the last Hong Kong film-makers still making movies today. While not as over-the-top as his earlier films, this one does not disappoint. Richie Jen is good as the lead actor but Cecilia Cheung shines in the lead female role. She's turning out to be quite the star. Wong Jing shows off his directorial skills in his feature. When he's not cranking out exploitive tripe, he can be a great director
(when he wants to be). Love him or hate him, he's one of the few directors in Hong Kong today.
Wong Jing makes two cameo spots. one as a restaurant patron and the other as a male passenger on the M.T.R. platform. His father also co-stars as Richie Jen's wealthy relative.
